Hi!

Could you please help me evaluate my profile and advise on target schools:

Background:

Working as a Business Analytics Associate Consultant on market research projects in various geographical markets spanning across 6 countries from Asia and North America with cross office teams from 4 office locations (Princeton, Toronto, New Delhi, Shanghai).

Few details of my work:
1. Implemented process streamlining and automation and reduced project's execution time by ~25%
2. Managed multiple projects and mentored junior associates on the team
3. Ran the first project on a new analytics tool at ZS with a team of 4 members and 3 vendors

Other roles at ZS (not work related):

2.Sponsorship lead of Analytics team under new employee sponsorship program. Managed 17 team members to help 47 new campus hires for smooth transition from college life to professional life.
3.Formulated a basketball team at ZS, entered a corporate tournament and bagged 4th position

Extra Curricular Activities:

2.Volunteer Work: Member of National Service Scheme in college. Taught mathematics to kids from financially weak backgrounds. Participated in trips to nearby villages to spread awareness for requirement of girl education.
3.Member of sponsorship cell of college sports festival. Gathered 100 thousand INR worth sponsorship for the festival. Also co-coordinator of an event in the college technical festival
4.Member of college news magazine run by students and trekking club

Applying for 2015 fall intake

Post MBA Goal: Higher consulting/Managerial role in market research sector

Target Schools: Any school where I can get some scholarship to offset the tuition fees. (I belong to a middle class Indian family and wish to return to my country and work, so I am short on the money I can invest)

I want to know for which schools would my profile be a fit. Also, I would prefer a lower rank school if I can manage some sort of partial/full scholarship to offset the tuition fees.

Thanks a lot! :)
